About CUBS

  1. 1. CUBSAbout the Center for Unified Biometrics and Sensors VenuGovindaraju Distinguished Professor, SUNY Buffalo CUBS Director
  2. 2. About CUBS• Advancing biometric technologies for civilian and homeland security by integrating pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms with sensors technology since 2003• Two strategic application areas: Biometrics and Language Technologies• Funded by industry and government agencies• Scholarly activities include 25 PhD dissertations and 350 scientific papers
  3. 3. Major Technical Achievements• Postal: Developed handwriting recognition technology used by US Postal Service leading to savings of several hundred million dollars “Computing Research that Changed the World: Reflections and Perspectives” March 25, 2009”:: Impact ::• Web Security: Innovated the first handwritten CAPTCHAs to improve web security “MIT” Tech Review January 09, 2009• Privacy Preserving Biometrics: Innovated a hashing method for storing and matching fingerprint data for cancelable biometrics US Patent 2011• Multilingual OCR: Steered the OCR community research towards including Indic scripts in digital library initiatives Guide to OCR for Indic Scripts• Deceit Detection: Developed automated techniques for analyzing eye movements and facial expressions. Can machines tell when a person is lying?
